Join Us!

We welcome volunteer labor, materials, and monetary donations. 

VOLUNTEER LABOR  We need help at times to simply walk the grounds and look for problems. To rake in the fall and spring. To plant and tend to new trees and bushes. We need volunteers in fund-raising campaigns. 

To volunteer your time, contact the Sexton at 315-265-3790 and leave a message. He will put you in touch with the volunteer project foreman.

DONATE MATERIALS  Some projects you may not be able to work on but could donate materials. Sometimes we need to borrow rakes or other tools. Occasionally machinery is needed: snow blowers, leaf blowers, chippers, tractors, and such. Sometimes we need a load of mulch or a 55-gallon barrel.

If donating materials is a way you could help, leave a message with the Sexton at 315-265-3790.

SEND MONEY  Finally, if you wish to make a monetary donation, you are asked to send a check to

Bayside Cemetery, P. O Box 491, Potsdam NY 13676

Remember, Bayside Cemetery is a tax-deductible non-profit organization, so our letter of thanks to you may be used when filing your taxes. As always, consult with your tax advisor first if you have any questions
